PEDESTRIAN MODEL PARAMETRIC STUDIES. VOLUME 2 - VEHICLE DESIGN OPTIMIZATION PROGRAM

The project has been undertaken to determine the effects of vehicle exterior design on pedestrian fatalities and injuries. A computer program which combines a mathematical optimization strategy with a pedestrian impact simulation program has been used for the studies. The goals for this project are to determine vehicle designs which minimize pedestrian fatalities in computer simulated pedestrian/vehicle impacts and to determine the effects of changes in optimal vehicle designs on the simulated pedestrian injuries and fatalities.
